Challenges for Prayer

The Grenadian diaspora is large, numbering possibly twice as many as those living in the country. The weak economy is the major cause of emigration, exacerbating the challenges of urbanization and a listless, dissatisfied younger generation.

     For an additional Challenge for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
